How helpful are most dads?
Interested to know the dynamics of other households. My spouse works close to 70 hrs a week, and I stay at home but work part time. He helps w occasional household chores, but never helps with the kids and never wakes up before me to get the kids up and ready. Will read our daughter a book once or twice a week before bed, but has never really been very involved with the kids and typically has low energy when we do spend time together since he works so much. There is really no fun in our relationship and I know nothing is perfect, but we have talked about it and gone to counseling and I just don’t think he’ll ever be the involved father I want him to be. He is good about ordering food or going food shopping, doing dishes, but I have to scream at him to get out of bed or participate in holidays. I feel like most families on weekends wake up together, talk about what they are going to do, and spend time together. He just does whatever he needs to and doesn’t even really act like we are there.
